Which Training Mode To Choose?

If your company is not yet ready for in-house training or do not yet have a specific project in mind, the Public QFD Green Belt® Course is a good starting point to explore how your business and new product planning might benefit from QFD.

Public Courses are also recommended for Lean/Six Sigma and DFLS/DFSS black belts and master black belts, internal Quality champions, innovation managers, new product development teams and marketing.

In-house custom-tailored training develops company-specific QFD and New Product Development process, as well as expertise that cannot be imitated by competitors. In-house custom-tailored training also develops internal QFD talents, who will be able to lead future QFD/NPD projects on their own and eventually certify their own trainees upon completion of the full status and train-the-trainer program.
